2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery to be held Monday
The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft, will take place Monday, April 29, at 8 p.m., ET.

The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft, will take place Monday, April 29, at 8 p.m., ET.

The League, in cooperation with TSN, will announce the results of the Draft Lottery live during a 30-minute program produced and televised by TSN in Canada. The special presentation also will air in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network and will re-air on NHL Network U.S. at 9 p.m., ET.

The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery will be the first in NHL history in which all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup® Playoffs -- or the clubs that have acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff teams -- will have a chance at winning the right to the first overall selection.

The odds of winning the lottery are unchanged from previous years and determined by the teams' regular-season point totals. The lottery-winning team will draft first overall, with the remaining 13 teams slotted in reverse order of their regular-season point totals. In previous years, the winning team could move up no more than four slots in the draft order.

Based on team finish, the percentage chance of being selected in the Draft Lottery is:

Florida Panthers   25.0%
Colorado Avalanche  18.8%
Tampa Bay Lightning  14.2%
Nashville Predators  10.7%
Carolina Hurricanes  8.1%
Calgary Flames  6.2%
Edmonton Oilers  4.7%
Buffalo Sabres  3.6%
New Jersey Devils  2.7%
Dallas Stars  2.1%
Philadelphia Flyers  1.5%
Phoenix Coyotes  1.1%
Winnipeg Jets  0.8%
Columbus Blue Jackets  0.5%

The 2013 NHL Draft will be held Sunday, June 30, with all seven rounds being conducted on the same day for the first time since 2006. As previously announced, the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center will host the event.
